100% biodegradable, melamine-free reusable coffee cup
These are 'climate stripes' that represent how the Earth has changed in temperature from 1850 to 2020. Each stripe represents a single year and is coloured based on the difference between the average temperature for that year and the average temperature during 1971-2000. If the temperature is below that average, the bar turns blue, changing in density depending on how below it is. Likewise, higher, it turns varying shades of red. As you can see there is a very drastic increase of red towards the later years showing a sharp increase in temperature. It was created by a scientist to highlight what the climate crisis is causing in a way that makes it quite clear to understand without being crushed by the science itself. A movement started called #showusyourstripes brought this image out into the mainstream and is widely acknowledged as a symbol of proof that the climate crisis exists.
These reusable cups contain no melamine or other plastics, and are BPA and toxin free, so nothing nasty to leach into your drink.
Made from 100% recycled material. Rice husks are a waste product from farming rice. Untreated rice husk needs to be burned in order to disappear and that is terribly bad for the environment. Recycled rice husk, however, is biodegradable, meaning if you put it in the ground it will eventually dissolve. It also uses 70% less CO2 to produce than conventional tableware.
Have your tea, coffee or cold drinks on the go with our travel cup made from natural rice husk. Look after it and it will last for years.
Rice husk cups are genuinely biodegradable as they do not contain melamine which is a plastic. Comes with a silicone sleeve and lid (silicone is not biodegradable but is non-toxic and recyclable).
When you are ready to dispose of this cup, soak it in water overnight, crush and bury it in compost or soil. It will start to biodegrade in soil within six months.
The cup is packaged in a cardboard gift box which explains product sustainability, advantages over bamboo cups, and final disposal.

More Rice Husk Facts
Rice husk is a naturally strong material, built of a naturally occurring silica that can help strengthen building structures. This means it can be used in things like cinder blocks, brickwork, and other building materials and it won’t collapse in on itself.
It resists moisture penetration - one of the qualities that makes it so good as a coffee cup!
The best thing about recycled rice husk is that it’s completely renewable. It can be reused again and again, and it won’t wear down. It’s incredibly resilient and can be used for a multitude of things. Better than this is that it’s cheaper than wood chips and completely termite resistant 💚
